Linen for plants 2011
In partnership with the European Confederation of Flax and Hemp - Masters of Linen.
This research project relates to new sorts of indoor objects made using plant material.
The strength of the project comes firstly from the materials used – European flax and hemp (plant material that can be processed in multiple ways) taken from the plant world. It also comes from the references the dozen or so students working on the project drew on in designing their objects, taking their inspiration from the landscape (contours, relief, erosion, vegetation, and so on), as well as from their original development of these themes, combining composite materials and textiles made entirely of flax and hemp.
